Respected Attorney and business advisor Michael Morley joins Betras, Kopp & Harshman Complex Litigation Group
Managing Partner David Betras announced today that Attorney Michael Morley has joined Betras, Kopp & Harshman’s (BKH) Complex Litigation Group (CLG) and is now available to consult with and advise clients in Ohio, the New York Metropolitan area, and cities across the United States.
Atty. Morley will become the fourth member of the CLG joining attorneys Brian Kopp, Christopher Knopik who is also Managing Attorney of the firm’s Tampa, Florida office, and Douglas Titus. The Group members have a combined 116 years of legal experience.
“Mike is a long-time friend, colleague, and an outstanding lawyer who will strengthen and enhance our complex litigation practice,” Atty. Brian Kopp remarked. “In addition to widening our areas of expertise, Mike’s presence will enable us to expand our footprint in New York City which in turn will give us access to a huge pool of potential clients who will fuel BKH’s growth in the years ahead.”
“When David and Brian offered me the opportunity to both focus on the type of extremely complicated cases and issues that have always been my passion and to practice alongside and one of the most talented teams of attorneys in the nation, I seized it,” Atty. Morley said. “I’m excited about joining a firm that is changing and improving the complex litigation paradigm.”
Atty. Morley brings vast and varied legal and business experience to BKH. Since beginning his legal career in 1981 he has practiced and secured significant settlements and victories in multiple federal and state jurisdictions as well as the United States Court of Claims. As a result of his success in court and at the negotiating table he is widely recognized as an aggressive and effective litigator adept at analyzing, pursuing, and prevailing in extremely complicated cases involving catastrophic medical malpractice, real estate transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and entertainment law.
His corporate, business, and venture capital resume is equally impressive. A trusted advisor to domestic and international firms and entities, Atty. Morley serves as general counsel for large multi-state commercial real estate developers, was President of CineBlast, a Manhattan-based film production company, and worked directly with Bloomberg Beta, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s private equity firm where he was responsible for identifying locations throughout the United States ripe for private equity investment.
Atty. Kopp describes the CLG as a “boutique” law firm within a law firm that provides highly specialized representation and consulting services to individuals and clients in a wide range of practice areas including catastrophic medical malpractice, business torts, commercial, contract and partnership disputes, business dissolutions, federal and state regulatory issues, corporate criminal defense, sports law and, now with the addition of Atty. Morley, entertainment law.
“We offer a depth and breadth of skill, knowledge, expertise, and experience that rivals or surpasses ‘white shoe’ and ‘tall building’ law firms minus the outrageous hourly fees and retainers,” Atty. Kopp said. “We are committed to ensuring that everyone, including business owners, investors, patent holders, and partners in closely-held firms, has access to sound legal counsel and the civil justice system. We accomplish that goal by keeping our fees reasonable and by working on a contingency basis with select commercial clients.”
